"Power Tools To Murderers"? Are You F-ing Kidding Me?

"Power tools to murderers." WTF? What's next, warden, swords? Tanks? Tactical Nukes? The justice system in 'Murica is 100% SNAFU & FUBAR! We beat the shit out of people who are innocent but can't make bail yet treat murderers like their crime was farting in public. No, seriously, if you are accused of a crime & you are poor & can't afford bail, you go to the hoosegow. Yes you do. 38% of people in jail are only there awaiting bail!

As the hilarious & venerable John Oliver pointed out on his show Sunday, June 6. READ:

Here's some more citations for you

We Lock Up Tons Of Innocent People & Charge Them For the Privilege (Mother Jones)
Are America's Jails Used To Punish Poor People (CBS News)

Google more and you'll find more on this. We've got to change this nation's justice for just us system or we're toast as a nation. As my haiku says, truthfully:

"Rich, White & Straight, You're Gonna Skate;
 Poor, Black or Gay, You Ain't Gonna Be OK."

Another inconvenient truth from the QM [drops mic]

Are You #DubyaDumb? Here Are The Warning Signs

Are you Dubya-Dumb? Here are the signs....1. You forgot we got into 2 trillion-dollar unnecessary wars costing over 4500 American soldiers' lives, 2. You forgot we went into Iraq on a lie (WMD=OIL) and created a power vacuum that we & thousands others will be suffering from for decades, 3. You forgot rich people got 2 tax cuts during those unfunded wars, 4. You forgot that poor governance over the financial system tanked our economy and millions lost their jobs, 700,000 a month, 5. You forgot another unfunded prescription drug program that gave lots of money to the same Big Pharma industry that creates all those pills on TV that kill you & lawyers make money suing. So, all the bullshit about Dubya being more popular than PBO is just that, BULLSHIT. If the truth is hard, tough. It's the fucking truth.
